Crossing Borders

Crossing Borders is a non-profit organization which educates people and empowers them to become active global citizens. It also raises awareness on global issues. Crossing borders’ aim is to contribute to building a peaceful and sustainable world in which diversity is celebrated and to enable people with different backgrounds to learn to live together on equal terms.

For this purpose, Crossing Borders creates platforms for people to form associations, networks and communities worldwide. According to its key values ‘authenticity, diversity and inclusion’, it provides dialogue space for each person to have their voice heard by sharing their stories. The idea is that democracy and peace can only be achieved and sustained through dialogue.

Initially in 1999, Crossing Borders started as a project in Denmark to support dialogue between the conflict parties in the Middle East. In response to increased activities and demands for the Crossing Borders concept and services, it was transformed in 2004 into an NGO and became an official partner with UNESCO.

Today Crossing Borders sets up several projects about many topics (democracy, sustainable development, feminism, mental health, migration and more!) to help people share their ideas and stories, learn from one another and become active global citizens!
